Re: Adrian Lam addressing Wigan Warriors' goal-kicking options

Hankinson looked a very decent goalkicker but as a centre, it was obvious that he lacked pace which meant he struggled as an attacking player but his defence was pretty decent. I was always surprised that the club and the player didn't look to bulk him up and become a second-rower. Sort of a Danny T...

Disciplinary Jokes

Out of god knows how many citings from the Hull v Wigan cup tie, none of which seems to warrant anything much further, two things stand out. Satae - "Player throws ball at the ground close to opponent. Ball does not contact opponent but unnecessary behaviour." Everyone who saw the match saw what hap...

Re: 21-man squad v Hull FC

Hull came with more aggression in defence and knew they could boss our forwards m, as we are known to have either not good enough or small props. And when you’ve got a kicker like Sneyd, he puts in the corners and we get smothered. Our kicking game has lacked for a good few years now. And today the...

Re: 21-man squad v Hull FC

Having watched him this season and especially today, French at full-back or not at all - I'd vote not at all. It looks as if he might benefit from a week or so off and normally, some specific coaching would be involved to try to get him back to last season's form but I don't imagine that is likely t...

Re: 21-man squad v Hull FC

Every single thing I feared................ and more. Hodgson learnt from last week - Lam didn't. Hicks let Hull spoil all afternoon and gave up giving set restarts in the second half. Our discipline (or lack of it) was evident - Smithies, Byrne etc. Some players had poor games but that happens so i...

Re: Clubb suspended

I'm not defending Tony Clubb because whichever form of words were used, it is a stupid and unnecessary thing to bring up someone's ethnicity. What I do find odd is the no one seems to have asked Savelio why he did not make his complaint immediately it was allegedly uttered. I've seen some comments t...

Re: 21-man squad v Hull FC

They will also bomb Bibby - he's very suspect under the high ball when he doesn't have lots of time and space to deal with it. Looks like we need either to double up in defence (which can be risky on the last tackle) or nominate someone different to deal with the high ball. I have not seen this, Fr...

Re: Adrian Lam has another forward in Wigan Warriors mix

Been wondering where KPP was. Certainly, there was some excitement when he was signed. Be nice if he can fit into the team at a young age.

Re: Referee for Saturday

Would have preferred another ref both on and off the field but at least it's not Child on the field. Better get our discipline sorted and lips buttoned up tight - Hicks does like to 'strut his stuff' when the cameras are there and the BBC commentary team will be glad to join in, no doubt. Need to ha...
